How long to claim Help to Buy once approved?

    Hi all, I want to build a house within the next couple of years. With the Help to Buy scheme expected to come to an end by the end of 2024, do I have to claim it by then or could I apply/be approved some time this year or even in 2024 and have a certain amount of time to draw it down??
